And finally… in a world first, a person has swum across the Red Sea.
British endurance swimmer Lewis Pugh completed the 123-kilometer swim on Wednesday. He did it to raise awareness of the dangers that the Red Sea’s coral reefs face,… as a result of worsening climate change.
The UN Patron of the Oceans took sixteen days to swim from Tiran Island in Saudi Arabia to the Egyptian city of Hurghada.
While in Egypt, Pugh will attend the Cop27 climate summit, which takes place from November 6th for 12 days in Sharm El Sheikh.
